Waxing lyrical since 1987
Our famous fishermans' smocks are made right here on the Isle of Skye from beautiful, colourful handloomed cotton designed and woven for us by Barbara Sansoni.
Occasionally (and only occasionally) if we don't have your choice in stock we will make it to order and there may be a short delay in dispatch. We will keep you informed if this happens.
Also, garments purchased may have some slight variation to these shown on the web site.
Cowl and Open Neck £78
Zip Jacket £80
Long line cotton Kurtas look great over skinny jeans, wide leg trousers or even leggings. More tailored than the traditional Kaftan they are available in four sizes.
We have been making our wrap skirts for years and they come in two lengths. They are easy to wear and move beautifully whilst you are twirling on the dance floor!
Available in two lengths:
Mid Length £37
Long Length £39
Here on the Isle of Skye, after a long day on the croft in the searing heat, we like to pour ourselves a tall gin & tonic, slip gracefully in to a kaftan & relax on the porch in the cool summer evening.
It’s usually about this time that the alarm goes off breaking us from this dream and it’s time to get up.

Every design has a story to tell and comes ready to hang on that blank bit of wall thats been bothering you for ages.
